Re: 2018 Civic HB Sport Touring CVT

I have a CARB Flashpro on my 2017 turbo CVT. It's a nice bump in power over stock using the +6 base map. It's easy to use and the Flashpro Manager software is very good. If you stay off the gas MPG's are about the same as stock. It's a nice simple set and forget setup. On the negative side, in the n...

Re: FlashProManager V3.1.2

Bummer. Oh well, at least it's good to see Hondata adding an update for the CVT models even though it won't help my CARB version.

For the folks with the race version what exactly does this do?

Re: FlashProManager V3.1.2

I have a 2017 CVT model. What exactly does "rolling anti-lag" do? If it helps with the hesitation when rolling along at light throttle and then mashing the pedal, that would be huge.

Re: Unlocking Flashpro for sale

I think the owner info stays but you could always update it to something fake like Name = name and Email = email.com for security purposes. As far as your VIN and calibration showing, I think you clear that by going to the "history" tab and clearing the info there.

Re: FlashPro Requests

Have you abandoned updating the 2016+ CVT Civics? Seems to me you’re losing out to the competition. Also noticed you are no longer active at the CivicX forum. What gives?

Point taken; we'll work on adding to all civics for the next release.
Are you any closer to adding modification support for the base 1.5 Civics (CVT and manual)? It's been nearly two months since your quoted post. Thanks.

Re: CVT off the line performance

Out of the box, with the base tunes, not really. I have the CVT and Flashpro and off the line performance and throttle response is slightly better than stock only. Hondata is very conservative with their base CVT tunes. On the other hand, if you work with a pro tuner, you certainly can get more off ...

Flashpro CARB user review

I've had my CARB Flashpro for 4 months so I wanted to give an unbiased review of the product. I went with the CARB version when the price was reduced by $200. It seemed to fit the bill as a simple set and forget tune option. The base +6 tune runs very well. It gives you excellent passing power and g...

Re: FlashProManager V3.1.0

We are aware of your requests. We cannot implement some of the MT features in the CVT (launch anti-lag for instance). Clearly I understand that. I was just hoping we'd see some drivabilty enhancements since I understand your reluctance to add power to the CVT models. Stuff like adjustable part thro...

Re: FlashProManager V3.1.0

And the wait goes on for improvements and features for us 1.5 CVT owners. Guess it's time to consider switching.

Re: Tweaked base CVT tunes?

BTW, I don't want it to seem like I don't love my FlashPro. I do. It's a great piece of software and my car runs much better than stock.

Hondata rocks.

Re: Tweaked base CVT tunes?

Jun... What I'm really talking about is drivability tweaks. Stuff like a toggle for improved throttle response. Toggles for a bit faster boost ramp and maybe earlier turbo spooling. The other tuner on the market offers that with it's CVT tunes. I'm surprised Hondata doesn't do something similar. See...

Re: Homemade +7.5 tune (CARB)

Driving it a bit more I really like the improvement. A bit more power and about the same MPG's as the +6 base tune. I think the throttle response difference I noted was just a placebo effect most likely.

Homemade +7.5 tune (CARB)

Here's what I did (I have the CARB Flashpro so tuning options are limited). I basically increased the TC MAX Pressure at 2750 rpm and above by 7%. And I upped the torque limit by 25nm in the meat of the powerband (3000-5500)... Then I did a long datalog. This highest boost I saw was 23.3 psi when I ...

Re: Tweaked base CVT tunes?

I guess the no response means no plans for tweaking or updating the CVT tunes. Oh well at least there are other options out there that do offer updates and tweaks for their CVT tunes. Too bad Hondata looks at us CVT owners as second class citizens.
